[S28 - Topic] Financial Models for Sustaining Biodiversity Informatics Products

This session will focus on the economics of sustaining biodiversity software platforms and tools, with revenue models that are not wholly comprised of grant funding. As cyberinfrastructure matures into widely-used, production data sources, software, and services, business models will be needed that identify and engage stakeholders who benefit from their value--potentially as payers. Innovative value propositions and clever financial models for long-term sustainability will be important for products seeking to support a community of institutions and initiatives that range from the large and well-resourced, to those that are small and sparingly funded.
